​Well, at the moment we says this:

"All of the processing must be done in a manner that is compatible
with common service deployment environments, such as hosting
environments.​"

Perhaps we can add something just after like this:

"Simplicity in certificate installation and maintenance are
key design goals.  Enabling this process to be incorporated
into the standard installation and upgrades of web servers
via a single command line invocation or flag would be
especially desirable".

That's less catchy than "apt-get install acme-cert", but it
may be more charter-y.

Is that worth doing?
